“Human solipsism creates a false inherency. We expect the universe to behave like our animal self, where there is an absolute conditioning to all of our thoughts provided by the self and its animal needs.
We expect the universe to exert control, and pass on to us absolute, innate, universal and inherent truths, like writing on a wall or the word of a controlling God.
More likely, we are projecting our own animal ego and social ego desires onto the universe, expecting it to act like us when we revert into our animal selves.
This solipsism — a lack of awareness of everything but the self — occurs when we seek control first, and logic second. It occurs in different frequencies among people. We can discipline ourselves to limit it.
Nihilism is that discipline.
By denying inherent truth, universals, absolute reality and belief, we are denying the projections of human solipsism that read those things into our world.
There is one truth — the world, including the vast universe and any metaphysical dimensions it has.
We are a small portion of that truth, and our thoughts of truth cannot supplant the whole.”
